300 WSM 26" match stainless barrel on Tikka blued action and synthetic stock at a good price. Apparently a tack driver....we shall see. DM is nice with lots of room and smooth feed. Will be able to seat long ballistic tip bullets close to lands without any problem. Has decelerator pad 11 degree crown and feels nice in hand. Also has rings tikka optilock. I'm going to put a Leo Vari X III on it. Should be good. What do you think about Tikka actions and the 300 WSM??

Well I guess I was hoping for some feedback. I was thinking about buying a Sendero but this deal seems pretty good. Would save 150 dollars over a new SS Sendero.

Rene that's nothing wrong with a SAKO Tika very well made and for the price really can't be beat. Good base for a custom though not many gsmiths work on them you can find some.

I believe that out of the box a Tikka is probably better assembled and finished than most domestic rifles. I have shot several and all of them worked and shot well, sometimes in the sub 3/4" level right out of the box - depends on the caliber and the shooter.
The .300 WSM is inherently an accurate cartridge, capable of factory velocities that match the longer .300 Win mag. I would stay with 175/180 grain bullets or even 200's if the action will allow. Should be a very good rig.
 

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
